the impact on election. i'm worried about the impact on families. >> this is what we live for. >> cenk: all right "viewpoint" is not on the air today because they're in new york, and obviously all of new york is suffering through storm sandy and i can give you the latest. in fact, it just made ground fall in southern new jersey as we speak. the winds are still up to 60 to 80 mph. we've got coastal flooding and 2 million people without power already. on top of that we just also heard unfortunately we have our first storm-related fatality in maryland. so obviously the storm is very, very serious and it should not be surprising to those who have been listening about climate change. unfortunately the media hasn't. reporters as they're hit in the phrase with this storm. >> they're really worried about what is behind me. >> we've been pounded for 40 continuous hours. >> now you can barely stand up. >> sorry, just getting pelted. >> okay, whoa, whoa, hey guys. whoa. >> there's things flying off actually the roof here. >> now 100 miles out there are those two survivors two people are missing in the
employment report before tuesday's election is in. with something for both candidates to talk about. we're going to go over all the numbers in a moment with former labor secretary robert reich but first we'll update you on the ongoing recovery from hurricane sandy. after the better part of the week without heat, light and other necessities millions in the new york city are desperate for some relief. so a bit of good news. hundreds of thousands in manhattan could get power back by midnight tonight. yet around the region, many are waiting as long as four hours to buy gas. fortunately new york's subway commuter rails are coming back and officials say the gas shortage should ease by midweek. meanwhile, the annual new york marathon has been canceled. many said it would divert needed resources from the cleanup and it was insensitive to the millions still suffering from the effects of the storm. adding up the sandy's grim totals. at least 102 dead including 41 in new york alone. some 3.6 million homes and businesses still without power. and $50 billion in losses. and now for some good news for
it can. i saw an e-mail from con ed today referencing next weekend the weekend after the election, as a date by which they hope to have all power back. what do you know about what is the holdup here? they have to rebuild some major substation. what has con ed been telling you? >> reporter: definitely. we talked to some of the power crews today. they feel bad because they're getting the brunt of the anger. they say we're having to move so much debris and so much sand and so much junk out of the road. some of the workers said they spent one whole day trying to clear a road just so they could get to one pole. that's why it is taking so long to get the power back on. we speak to our colleagues who live in new jersey today and they've been told next friday is when they'll have power restored. so they're now trying to find ways of getting to the city to work in new jersey and stay in hotels. by the way eliot hotels are booked. there is no hotel room in sight likely over the next week. this is becoming a bigger and bi
left but attacks and insults. with just 11 days ago before election day both camps feel the pressure. likely voters favored romney over the president by one point in a "abc news" washington post. and five points in in the latest gallup tracking poll. an american research poll showed the president with a two-point edge. we should know next week whether the singer meat loaf at a rally last night shift the balance of weight in that key state. a purple poll gave thethe one-point engine in cool and showed him tied with romney at 47-47 in virginia. the republican-leaning rasmussen gave obama a two-point lead over romney in florida. david axelrod still seems confident of a obama win leaving romney to place to go. in my view we have got the lead and the ball. the question is how does he change that now. maybe so, but the job numbers that come out the friday before the election still have the potential to change the dynamics in this very tight race. for administer on this speech the every tightens polls i'm joined by christia freeland digital editor at thomson reuters and author of "plutocrat
to an election eight days away. how he handles this might be enormously important to how you vote in november. that's the president talking about the importance of fema. when you talk to mitt romney, if he talks like he did during the primaries, he told you he's not interested in fema. >> therefema is running out of money and some are saying maybe we are learning what the state's role should you. >> when you take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. to go even further and send it to the private sector, that's even better. >> cenk: private sector? so you want to profit off this? mitt romney's obsessed, man. the only thing the guy ever thinks about is money. he sees a storm and doesn't think how am i going to protect america. no, it's how am i going to make a buck of this. this is not the time to privatize. that's like privatizing the police or fire department. oh i'm going to request those people in that storm depending if i make an extra dollar out of it or not. that's a horrible idea. people on the east coast are living through wha

built that. that's next. >> eliot: who built that was the question that framed the election for a month during the convention season. as the republican party tried to mock the sensible and correct argument made by president obama, the government had, in fact, built much of what made our economy tick. from many of the essential pieces of our infrastructure to thethe great public universities that produce ground-breaking technology and funding research and development all of this is what permits and helps our economy to forge ahead. and put aside for the moment that the speakers at the republican convention took the president's statement totally out of context asserting that the president claimed government built the businesses, not the surrounding infrastructure that permits businesses to drive. ignoring the facts speaker after speaker came to the podium at the republican convention and said mockingly we built that. as if to debunk the need for government. the speeches, in fact, captured the disdain that romney encouraged for all things governmental until his recent late night conversati
decided it was a better way to wait this out and for those elected officials who decided to ignore my admonition, this is now your responsibility. >> there's always going to be that certain few that despite your best efforts are going to do as they see fit anyway and then at the last minute, decide that they should have left. in life, it's better to have options and not need them than to need options and not have them. >> >> this is actually live, let's listen in for a few seconds. >> be responsive for their needs for food, water and cots. four federal disaster medical assistance teams are aiding our state staff shelters. two teams have arrived and two teams are on their way. the county medical reserve corps is action have id and assessing in our medical shelters for the folks who are there. >> that is chris christie looking pretty has gone guard which by the way for a politician at times like this is terrific because people want you to work hard and he is. fair is fair. we are back let's start with the fight between the mayor and governor. is there any way of knowing who is right? it
he said in the context of the election, i simply said he should have waited, the storm was still forming people were debating whether it was going to be as bad as expected or not and i noted that the president should have let the governors and mayors deal with the storm until it got closer to hitting the coastal areas along the washington, d.c., new york city corridor. well, we wanted to invite michael brown on the show here to have him explain that comment a little bit more. he's joining us now. he's cohost with david sirota in denver the cohost a.m. 630khow in denver, the station they're on. michael brown, thank you so much for joining us. >> my pleasure. how are you guys doing? >> cenk: great. so, michael, of course, everybody is wondering about this comment. what in the world do you mean that president obama moved too fast in this case to deal with this storm? >> there's really no explaining because -- the article -- the reporter calls -- talk about the politics of disaster. >> cenk: that's a shame.
